Join creator of much-loved comedy quiz show QI John Lloyd CBE and QI Elves James Harkin and Anne Miller for a special festive literary quiz celebrating 90 years of Faber & Faber at our flagship Charing Cross Road store.
The QI contingent will give the quiz a unique flavour, adding a distinctly literary focus to their trademark brand of eclectic questions. You’ll also be in with a chance of winning some very special prizes including a QI Quiz Book and a Faber & Faber Literary Hamper!
Teams are made up of 6 members. Should you wish to take an entire team, please book 6 tickets using the Eventbrite checkout below, otherwise you will be allocated a team at random.
John Lloyd CBE is the creator of QI and founding producer of The News Quiz, Quote . . . Unquote, Not the Nine O’Clock News, To the Manor Born, Spitting Image and Blackadder. He has had two sell-out solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Liff of QI (2013) and Emperor of the Prawns (2015). John was the Voice of the Book in the Hexagonal Phase of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (2018) on BBC Radio 4, where he also presents The Museum of Curiosity – the fourteenth series, co-hosted by Bridget Christie, is airing now.
James Harkin is the head writer on QI, with ten series and five bestselling books under his belt. He co-hosts the QI Elves’ podcast No Such Thing As A Fish, which has racked up over 100 million listens, won two Chortle comedy awards and toured extensively across the UK, Europe and Australia including a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House. He has also appeared on TV quiz shows Fifteen to One and Only Connect, reaching the semi-finals in the latter and embarrassingly crashing out of the former.
Anne Miller is a scriptwriter and Assistant Producer for QI who can usually be found buried beneath a pile of books. The first QI episode she wrote was entitled ‘Literature’ and her most recent was ‘Quills’. She produces BBC Radio 4’s The Museum of Curiosity, reached the semi-finals of BBC Two’s fiendishly difficult quiz Only Connect and has two Blue Peter badges. Her debut children's book Mickey and the Animal Spies is out in 2020.
Tickets: £6 per person. If you would like to enter a team for the quiz, please book 6 tickets.
